Italian Immersion

At StudioLingua, we offer a comprehensive Italian immersion program that includes language instruction, cultural activities, and play-based learning. Our curriculum is designed to be engaging and fun, while also providing children with the skills they need to become proficient in Italian.

Nurturing creative problem solvers

The Reggio Emilia approach is an innovative and inspiring approach to early childhood education. It is based on the principles of respect, responsibility, and community through exploration and discovery in a supportive and enriching environment. This teaching approach emphasizes a child-centered and hands-on learning style that encourages collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking.

The Reggio Emilia Atelier

Our atelier has a wide range of art materials and resources, including
paints, brushes, clay, paper, fabrics, natural materials, and found objects.
Children are free to explore the materials and engage in self-directed
artistic activities and they are encouraged to manipulate, transform, and combine materials in unique and personal ways. All projects focus on the journey of creating, rather than the final outcome. Children work individually or in small groups, sharing ideas, techniques, and inspiration and they discuss their work, and engage in dialogue with peers and teachers.

Nurturing little minds in a bilingual environment

At StudioLingua, we believe in creating a learning environment that is safe, nurturing and stimulating for our students. We are committed to fostering a space of collaboration and mutual respect, where students are encouraged to explore their interests and develop their skills. Our educational approach emphasizes the importance of teamwork and communication, and is designed to help children develop confidence and independence. Through our play-based activities and interactive projects, we strive to give our young learners the tools they need for success in the future.
